Hello. This is WM Entertainment.
First off, we apologize for creating a controversy through this shameful act.
After Woollim Entertainment conducted an investigation because of this event, members who were involved along with staff members (2 fan managers) took responsibility and resigned. In the future, we will become a Woollim Entertainment that listens to the sincere voices of fans who love and cherish Infinite. We will put an effort in making sure that nothing similar to this happens again. We bow our heads down once more and sincerely apologize.
